Biographies of Female Mathematicians

These pages are part of an on-going project by students in mathematics classes at Agnes Scott College, in Atlanta, Georgia, to illustrate the numerous achievements of women in the field of mathematics. There are biographical essays or comments on most of the women mathematicians and some photos.

This site has biographies of mathematicians organized in both an alphabetical and a chronological index.

This site has biographies, posters and quotations of mathematicians on the dates of their birth.

The Mathematics Genealogy Project is a resource to help mathematicians trace their intellectual lineage. The goal of the project is to list all individuals who have received doctorates in Mathematics in the 20th century, and to note where and when they received the degree, the title of their dissertation and the name of their advisor.
